She Said YES!

OH how Momma and Daddy are so all of the above! 

Haley Elizabeth is engaged!! 

I'm getting a 2nd son in law! We are so happy for Cody and Haley!

Cody came and talked to Daddy late one night a few weeks ago unbeknownst to Haley and Momma! We were upstairs cuddling in Momma's bed talking and giggling. Daddy gave his blessing and the best was yet to come! We patiently waited to hear the news!
October 10th, Haley was working and desperately trying to get out of the restaurant by 9:00 to meet Cody and his family for a pizza night. Everyone kept her there to stall by visiting, discussing something, etcetc....finally she was told to come to the patio before she left and there was Cody with roses and ring in hand. Haley in work clothes! With anxious coworkers watching from the windows and cameras clicking....he knelt and asked my little girl to be his wife. We are so excited for them! They are a wonderful couple who love each other. But most of all they put God first and love the Lord. I'm so thankful God has answered our prayers to provide a Godly man for her. We have been praying for this since she was our tiny baby. God is good!  Daddy knew someday he would have to share her and give her away. But she will always always be "Daddy's girl".  Her first words to Cody were, "Is it okay with my Dad?"
Cody makes her complete, he brings out the best in her, and he is deeply respectful of her. What more could a Momma want....of course as a Mommy I would love to keep her little and here with me....but this is God's plan and his plan is PERFECT!! 
Congratulations Cody and Haley! We love you very much and we are so very happy for you!

A friend of Haley's that she works with captured this special event moment by moment... and I'm so grateful to get to see the joy in my daughter's face on such a memorable occasion. Cody, I'm so proud of you for pulling this off!

Yes....I cried!

Hi Tanya,

So good to hear from you. Yikes, computer crashes are not good ... but your daughter's exciting news is definitely good. I'm so happy for all of you.

He sounds like a great guy and what a blessing that your prayers have been answered in this way.
